We describe a system for non-photorealistic rendering (NPR) of virtual environments. In real time, it synthesizes imagery of architectural interiors using stroke-based textures. We address the four main challenges of such a system — interactivity, visual detail, controlled stroke size, and frame-to-frame coherence — through image based rendering(More)
We present a new visibility-based prefetching algorithm for interactive out-of-core rendering of large models on an inexpensive PC. Using an approximate visibility technique, we can very accurately and efficiently determine which geometry will be visible in the near future and prefetch that geometry from disk before it must be rendered. Our prefetching(More)
We present a sort-first parallel system for out-of-core rendering of large models on clusterbased tiled displays. The system renders high-resolution images of large models at interactive frame rates using off-the-shelf PCs with small memory. Given a model, we use an out-of-core preprocessing algorithm to build an on-disk hierarchical representation for the(More)
We present a practical system to visualize large datasets interactively on commodity PCs. Interactive visualization has applications in many areas, including computeraided design, engineering, entertainment, and training. Traditionally, visualization of large datasets has required expensive high-end graphics workstations. Recently, with the exponential(More)
We present a method for applying complex textures to hand-drawn characters in cel animation. The method correlates features in a simple, textured, 3-D model with features on a hand-drawn figure, and then distorts the model to conform to the hand-drawn artwork. The process uses two new algorithms: a silhouette detection scheme and a depth-preserving warp.(More)
We present iWalk, a system for interactive out-of-core rendering of large models on an inexpensive PC. The system uses a new outof-core preprocessing algorithm and a new multi-threaded out-ofcore rendering approach. The out-of-core preprocessing algorithm is incremental and fast, and it builds an on-disk hierarchical representation for a model larger than(More)

This paper describes a pipeline for the acquisition and rendering of large real-world environments. In the acquisition phase, we use a laser rangefinder to capture the geometry of an environment, and a digital camera to capture its colors. In the rendering phase, we use a cluster of commodity PCs to render high-resolution images of the environment at(More)
We present SPVN (Scalable Parallel Visual Networking), a new application framework for interactive visualization of large datasets. We designed SPVN with four main goals in mind. First, we wanted to make it easier for developers to write visualization applications that can handle massive datasets and deliver interactive frame rates. SPVN provides developers(More)
In this paper, we describe a set of 3D and 4D visualization tools and techniques for CORIE, a complex environmental observation and forecasting system (EOFS) for the Columbia River. The Columbia River, a complex and highly variable estuary, is the target of numerous cross-disciplinary ecosystem research projects and is at the heart of multiple sustainable(More)
